Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

At Laurier, we know there’s a lot to consider when calculating the cost of your education, so we’ve increased our financial support for transfer students through a variety of different programs. Be sure to regularly check out our scholarships and bursaries for a current list of available opportunities. And don’t forget to check our important dates to find out when applications for awards, scholarships and bursaries open and close.

In-Course Scholarships

In-course scholarships provide financial support based on GPA and are available to full-time undergraduate students who are not in their first year at Laurier.

Competitive Scholarships and Awards

Laurier offers a large number of competitive scholarships and awards that are granted based on a range of criteria, such as academic achievement, co-curricular activities or volunteer work. We also offer donor-supported bursaries, which are based solely on financial need.

You can apply online for a variety of scholarships and awards by filling out a student profile. The student profile is a universal application that allows us to determine if you are eligible for a competitive scholarship, award or donor-supported bursary. You only need to fill out one student profile to be considered for a variety of awards opportunities.


The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) helps qualified students pay for their schooling with grants, which do not need to be paid back, and loans, which are interest-free while you are a student. In 2017/18, OSAP changed its structure and introduced the new Ontario Student Grant. You can use OSAP's online aid estimator to help you estimate what funding you could be eligible for.

Laurier Tuition Bursary

The tuition bursary is for full-time students, studying in the fall and winter terms, who have applied for OSAP funding. Your application is assessed based on your income and expenses for the applicable study period, and you may be eligible for a bursary even if you do not receive OSAP.

Working at Laurier

At Laurier, there are several options to earn money while you learn. Our work-study program provides students in financial need with part-time employment opportunities on campus. In addition, Laurier hires hundreds of students for on-campus positions in virtually every department across campus.
